prohibited transaction provisions.
Failing to satisfy the 408(b)(2) regulation
disclosure requirements may result in
provision of services prohibited by
ERISA section 406(a)(1)(C), with
consequences for both the responsible
plan fiduciary and the covered service
provider. ERISA section 408(b)(2)
authorizes this information collection.
See 29 U.S.C. 1108(b)(2).
This information collection is subject
to the PRA. A Federal agency generally
cannot conduct or sponsor a collection
of information, and the public is
generally not required to respond to an
information collection, unless it is
approved by the OMB under the PRA
and displays a currently valid OMB
Control Number. In addition,
notwithstanding any other provisions of
law, no person shall generally be subject
to penalty for failing to comply with a
collection of information that does not
display a valid Control Number. See 5
CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL
obtains OMB approval for this
information collection under Control
Number 1210–0133.
OMB authorization for an ICR cannot
be for more than three (3) years without
renewal, and the current approval for
this collection is scheduled to expire on
March 31, 2015. The DOL seeks to
extend PRA authorization for this
information collection for three (3) more
years, without any change to existing
requirements. The DOL notes that
existing information collection
requirements submitted to the OMB
receive a month-to-month extension
while they undergo review. For
additional substantive information
about this ICR, see the related notice
published in the Federal Register on
October 15, 2014 (79 FR 61903).
Interested parties are encouraged to
send comments to the OMB, Office of
Information and Regulatory Affairs at
the address shown in the ADDRESSES
section by April 30, 2015. In order to
help ensure appropriate consideration,
comments should mention OMB Control
Number 1210–0133. The OMB is
particularly interested in comments
that:
• Evaluate whether the proposed
collection of information is necessary
for the proper performance of the

whether the information will have

Levi Strauss & Co., Eugene, Oregon;
Notice of Affirmative Determination
Regarding Application for
Reconsideration
[FR Doc. 2015–07237 Filed 3–30–15; 8:45 am]
By application dated on February 6,
2015, a state workforce official
requested administrative
reconsideration of the negative
determination regarding workers’
eligibility to apply for worker
adjustment assistance applicable to
workers and former workers of Levi
Strauss & Company, Eugene, Oregon.
The determination was issued on
January 14, 2015 and the Notice of
Determination was published in the
Federal Register on February 18, 2015
(80 FR 8692).
Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c)
reconsideration may be granted under
the following circumstances:
(1) If it appears on the basis of facts
not previously considered that the
determination complained of was
erroneous;
(2) If it appears that the determination
complained of was based on a mistake
in the determination of facts not
previously considered; or
(3) If in the opinion of the Certifying
Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of
VerDate Sep<11>2014

Jkt 235001
the law justified reconsideration of the
decision.
The initial investigation resulted in a
negative determination based on the
findings that worker separations at Levi
Strauss & Co., Eugene, Oregon are not
attributable to increased imports of
articles or a shift in production of
articles to a foreign country.
The request for reconsideration
asserts that although the workers are
engaged in service-related activities, the
workers perform production forecasting
activities and order management
support of Levi Strauss’ production of
clothing and apparel. The
reconsideration application concludes
that both activities drive production and
has been shifted to a foreign country.
The Department of Labor has carefully
reviewed the request for reconsideration
and the existing record, and has
determined that the Department will
conduct further investigation to
determine if the workers meet the
eligibility requirements of the Trade Act
of 1974.
